Holy crap! Where did you find that?
OK, that brings something new to the table. Apart from the height, that terracing is textbook Harris Green guidelines. Windows on all sides.
I’ve got more info coming tomorrow. Hang tight.
Back in the 90s when the Harris Green Charette happened the concept of terraced condos was the bee's knees. The goal was a more "European" urban form with a nine storey height limit but no density limit. But soon dawned Vancouverism and the era of the podium tower. Architects were also skeptical about terraced buildings with all that roof coverage and exposed balconies in our rainy climate.

Hopefully the additional info will include a rendering with a bit more terracing on the north side at the top. The reverse of the south facade would do nicely.
Nine-storey, car-free complex built out of pre-fabricated steel could replace a single-storey commercial building in Harris Green.
